    CC Sabathia complains about Eduardo Nunez bunting

    NEW YORK -- Yankees lefty CC Sabathia has stymied the Boston Red Sox in four starts this season. On Thursday night, he felt like scolding them too.

    Speaking after New York's 6-2 victory at Yankee Stadium, Sabathia lashed out at the Red Sox, calling them "scared" and accusing them of "trying to take the weak road" by bunting against him. In particular, former Yankees infielder Eduardo Nunez reached base in the first inning when Sabathia made an errant throw after fielding a bunt.

    "It is kind of weak to me," Sabathia said. "It is what it is. It just shows what they got over there."

    Sabathia, 37, spent 10 days on the disabled list in August because of inflammation in his surgically repaired right knee. He also is 4-0 with a 1.04 ERA in four starts against the Red Sox, who are batting .246 against left-handed starting pitchers, compared to .267 against right-handed starters.

    Nunez made a gesture of apology to Sabathia before his at-bat in the third inning. But Nunez also made it clear after the game that he wasn't sorry for trying to reach base however he can.

    "It's my game. I cannot change my game," Nunez said. "We know he has a bad knee, but it's not my problem. I can't change my game. I have to try bunting."

    Asked whether he might try to bunt again the next time he faces Sabathia, Nunez said, "100 percent."

    "If I have to bunt four times in a row, I'll do it," Nunez said. "I don't care if he's mad or not. That's what it is. I have to compete, and he has to figure it out. Play in. Or field the ball. I don't care."

    CC Sabathia complains about Eduardo Nunez bunting

    It seems Rod Carew, Pete Rose, and Bret Butler needed new jobs.

    Maybe get in better shape so you can field a bunt? What a joke.

    Did this really get edited for pointing out how many games a team is behind in the division and putting a smiley? Bruh.

    If you can't do your job because you're not in shape, that's your own fault. As a Red Sox fan I saw them waste almost $100M on Pablo.

    He's complaining that the Red Sox are taking advantage of him not being in shape. Think about that for a second.

    Did Sabathia just complain about not being able to bend over on the field?

    Because if I faced CC I would be bunting it right to his feet every single time....guaranteed hit.
    We’re pointing out that these statistics breed false narratives, and we value the truth. This isn’t about replacing old numbers with new numbers, or attempting to dissuade anyone from enjoying the aesthetics of the game. It is simply about telling the average fan about the reality of what actually happened on the field. The “Holy Trinity” of baseball statistics fail at this most basic task, and so they are not worth deifying any longer. - Dave Cameron

    I hope a hitter follows this up by calling CC scared and weak for pitching inside or something similarly stupid.

    I don't even know why they keep score, the last thing we need in sports is one side trying to exert an advantage over the other side trying to win a game.
    Maybe if Nunez told him he can't hit a pitch in a certain part of the zone so please don't be weak and throw there CC would just groove him balls in his wheelhouse.
